Stone Broken, who will release their second studio album, 'Ain’t Always Easy' on 15 May, are coming over to play Dublin and Belfast in June.
The West Midlands band have also unveiled a brand new single, ‘Heartbeat Away’ (taken from the forthcoming album).
‘Heartbeat Away’ is a deeply personal song for Stone Broken front-person and lyricist, Rich Moss; the single tackles the subject of domestic abuse, suggesting that the realities need to be discussed more openly and addressed immediately.
Moss says: “The subject of ‘Heartbeat Away’ is a little closer to home than most of the other songs I have written… seeing the impact that domestic violence has on a person you are close to and the way it affects the people around them isn’t a very nice thing to experience.
"I thought it was time to shine a light on something that usually happens behind closed doors, hidden away from the rest of the world. When people listen to this song I think they will know that it’s personal and that I mean every word.”
Stone Broken follow their recent sold-out spring 2018 UK & European headline tour with confirmation of a run of new UK & Irish live shows, plus a Friday night headline spot at this year’s Steelhouse Festival in South Wales.
